CfP: International Conference: Medical Practice in Early Modern Britain in Comparative Perspective

Papers are invited for an international conference to be held at the University of Exeter (UK) on 4-6 September 2017 , funded by the Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator Award for the project ‘The Medical World of Early Modern England, Wales and Ireland 1500-1715’ led by Professor Jonathan Barry and Dr Peter Elmer at Exeter (see the project website at http://practitioners.exeter.ac.uk/). This conference will consider the outputs from this project, in particular the database which has been created of more than 30,000 medical practitioners operating in the period, and the opportunities this offers for new research in the field. It will also consider comparative perspectives on early modern Britain, both spatially and temporally, and so welcomes papers from colleagues working on medical practice in other parts of Europe or its colonies, on other cultures (Islamic, Indian, Chinese etc) and also on the periods either side of our 1500-1715 focus, so that we can place the findings of the proj

In such a framework, it makes sense to bridge a various set of practices not restricted to science: a local site is the constantly evolving product of the practices, imaginations, and negotiations of the users (scholars, travelers, artists, inhabitants) of a given place. In any case, our idea is that a site is surely in the scholar’s job an en-plein-air experience that should be related to the atelier phase, by which nature can be recreated (painters), transformed (laboratories), classified (collectors) etc. Workshops and sites of naturalist interest are hybrid fields of materi
